    Mattress

    Just layed down on mattress for the first time. Good lawd this thing is like a brick. Does it soften up with use? If not and we elect to purchase a memory foam mattress, will a standard king matrress cause problems with the slide?

    No...it doesn't.
    We bought a 10-inch Cool Gel Memory Foam.

    We bought a mattress cover with foam at Wal-Mart for approx. $45.00. Works for us. Hope that helps.

    Re: Mattress

    We replaced ours with a king sleep number. It fits a little tighter against the small side "tables", but that actually works out better because items can't drop in between. Of course, it's not the easiest thing in the world to make but we love our sleep number. It even has the rounded end corners.

    Re: Mattress

    We put a Costco 3" foam topper on our mattress, and it worked much better. Softened it up a bit. It is FIRM though. I had to trim about 2" off the side of it to make it fit.

    For those of you that replaced the mattress with a regular king mattress, does the comforter still ft on it?

    We just added a memory foam gel 3 inch mattress topper. Came from Walmart. Was $150 Made big difference. Had to cut some off the side and around the corners but it did the trick.

    Re: Mattress

    I just replaced my mattress with a King Sealy Super Pillow top.. It measures 76X79.5 so it is 4 inches wider and does not have rounded edges. It does squeeze up against the side shelves, but like someone said earlier, stuff doesn't fall in between the mattress any more. It is a little tighter on the sides as well, and sits up higher.. However, I can now reach the over head reading lights without straining. And,, it is soooo comfortable! The factory mattress was ripped from the factory, and GD will not warrantee it.. So I had to buy a new one... Michael B.

    Ours came with the memory foam and I am not a fan. We will be full timing in a few years so I will be getting a sleep number for the rig. Our king from home....not sure it would fit. LOVE my sleep number.
